The CFA's annual book fair is this weekend! It will be held at Politics & Prose, 5015 Connecticut Avenue NW, on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.  This event has brought tons of books to our school's classrooms. Plus Politics & Prose donates 20% of sales from the book fair right back to CMI. We still need more volunteers; sign up here!

This year's annual fundraising campaign kicks off next week! The campaign will run from Oct. 28-Nov. 26 with a goal of raising $50,000 for CMI funding priorities. Last year's campaign helped fund new school books, bike racks, a new basketball hoop, picnic benches and a number of other items for use by our children. Info on where to donate is coming soon.

The next CFA coffee is Friday, Nov. 1, 8:15-9 a.m. Come learn about the plans for this year's Fall Fundraising Campaign. 

The CFA is holding movie nights! Grades 4-8 will be held on Friday, Nov. 1 from 6-8 p.m. and PS-3 will be on Friday Nov. 15, 6-8 p.m. We are looking for help: volunteer here for the upper grade night and here for the lower grade night.

The first CFA meeting of the year will be on Wednesday, Nov. 6 in the CMI all purpose room from 6-7:15 p.m. Childcare and pizza for the kids will be provided, RSVP here.


The CMI Chameleons Robotics team is hosting our first ever VEX IQ robotics tournament at CMI on Dec. 7. Our team of 1st through 4th graders will be competing with other DC-area teams, hoping to return to VEX Worlds again in April. 
We encourage other CMI parents will volunteer to help out at the tournament. You don't need to have any robotics expertise to do it - there are many different jobs from judging to refereeing to selling concessions. Or just come and watch this great competition and cheer on your fellow Chameleons. If you're curious about helping out, please email Mae Wu or Elizabeth Maclin or checkout our sign up page
Popcorn sales are every Thursday in the downstairs lobby and at the outside pick up location, weather permitting. Credit card payments accepted in the lobby. We also need 1-2 adults for each event to help with set up and oversee sales on Thursdays between 2-4:30 p.m. Sign up here, lots of slots are available.
